mass shooting

Feedback on Las Vegas Coverage, Fundraising

Oct 9, 2017

As many of you know, last Monday was a very challenging day for us at WEKU.  In the midst of our fund drive, we had the horrible news of the mass shooting in Las Vegas and, of course, had to make sure we provided extensive coverage.

A crowd of a few dozen gathered in Lexington’s Triangle Park  Wednesday evening to remember those who died in Sunday's mass shooting in Las Vegas. 

Mayor Jim Gray said people here mourn and grieve for those in Nevada who gathered together for a good time, a great American tradition, country music.

Police  in Cincinnati continue to investigate a mass shooting at a  nightclub early Sunday morning  WEKU’s Cheri Lawson reports one person was killed and at least 15 were injured.

Gunfire broke out in the early morning hours inside the Cameo Nightclub in Cincinnati’s East End. Police are looking for more than one shooter.

Hundreds gathered in Lexington’s Triangle Park Sunday night for a vigil in memory of the victims of the nation’s worst mass shooting. 

Worship leader of Bluegrass United Church of Christ, Kenny Bishop offered this with his opening comments, inviting those in attendance to say with him,  “God is love.”

Bishop told those gathered scripture says, “Perfect love casts out fear.” 

Reflecting on the tragic loss of life inside a gay bar in Orlando, a range of emotions was running through the downtown crowd.  The gunman had claimed allegiance to the Islamic State.
